Forum: GratefulDead Subject: COPY CAT?

I play in an outfit that does lots of dead along with originals. We try and do the dead our way ,instead of copying.
Im interested in hearing feedback from yall since you really understand the whole vibe
Do you appreciate the original approach or more tribute sounding?

Go online, find a Paul McCartney show from the last few years, and give a listen, especially to the Beatle songs. His band copies key riffs, drum rolls, etc. that are important to some songs, and open up more on others.

Then copy your covers at practice to see what parts are key, keep them, and arrange from there.
